Samantha CicalaENC1102-0115Professor NelsonMarch 26, 2016Annotated BibliographyTrockel, Mickey T., Michael D. Barnes, and Dennis L. Egget. "Health-Related Variables andAcademic Performance Among First-Year College Students: Implications for Sleep and OtherBehaviors." Taylor & Francis. N.p., 24 Mar. 2010. Web. 28 Mar. 2016. This journal from the USnational library of medicine is useful to this topic because it discusses the different healthvariables that could be associated with grades. This article is specific to my topic because itnarrows the audience and population down to first year college students. The authors of thearticle analyzed the effect of several health behaviors and health-related variables on the gradesof college students. They used a random sampling of 200 students that were living on campus ata private University. Some of the behaviors that were included in the study were exercise,nutrition, and sleep habits. These behaviors were also related with gender and age to try and getthe most specific results possible. The article supports the argument that nutrition and health doeshave a significant impact on the academic success of college students.Wald, Adrienne, Peter A. Muennig, Kathleen A. O'connell, and Carol Ewing Garber."Associations Between Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors and Academic Performance in U.S.Undergraduates: A Secondary Analysis of the American College Health Association's NationalCollege Health Assessment II." American Journal of Health Promotion 28.5 (2014): 298-305.Web. 28 Mar. 2016. This article was another analysis that was published by the US national
library of medicine, but was written by some different researchers and scientists. Theseresearchers used a cross-sectional observational study in order to examine the associationsbetween academic performance in college students, and moderate-vigorous physical activity,nutritional intake, and sleep. This study was conducted at forty different US Universitiesparticipating in the Fall 2008 National College Health Assessment, which gives a very vastpopulation for results that are even more sufficient to support the topic. In all, this was a total of16,095 undergraduate students from ages 18-24, with 70.3% females. The lifestyle variableswere dichotomized as meeting or not meeting the public health recommendations as well asusing the GPA scale of 1.00 to 4.00. This article supported the topic because it concluded thatstudents who adhere to public health recommendations for lifestyle behaviors have higher gradeaverages after adjusting for negative health behaviors.Odlaug, Brian L., Katherine Lust, Cathrine L. Wimmelmann, Samuel R. Chamberlain, Erik L.Mortensen, Katherine Derbyshire, Gary Christenson, and Jon E. Grant. "Prevalence andCorrelates of Being Overweight or Obese in College."
